Process, program, system, story, service, and experience are integral to Mr. deWolf's interdisciplinary approach. As a counterbalance to consumer culture, Mr. deWolf advocates sustainability, inclusivity, and social and community awareness.  John is driven by a desire to preserve culture and heritage, and develop public initiatives that benefit the community.
